The hiking trails are great for a day out. You can see deer and fish in the ponds. It is a nice way to spend the day

Nice walk with great views from the peak of the hill. There are lots of fitness minded folks as well as Dog walkers, but not crowded by any means. Good place to get back to the Great Outdoors!

On a sunny day, this would be lovely for a picnic. You may need to take a blanket as I dont recall a lot of tables and chairs BUT it is a nice place for a family picnic
can we hike here if we are not a danbury resident?
